PARP Apoptosis Extract(PDF)

Product Number Amount/Size Price
#S0001 10 Western Blots $90/set


Total cell lysates collected from Jurkat cells treated with vehicle (-) or actinomycin D (AD) and lysed in CHAPS Cell extract buffer (B0001). The treatment activates the apoptotic cascade and this induces proteolytic/substrate cleavage of PARP (89kDa). The treatments serve as molecular weight controls for Western blot analysis.


Provided as a lyophilized sample. Resuspend each of the (+) and (-) PARP control extracts in 100ul of 1X Laemmli Reducing Sample Buffer. Distribute and label each of the (+) and (-) samples into 10ul aliquots and store at -20C.


10ul/well Western Blot; Load 10ul of positive and 10ul of negative control and lysates per lane. To use: heat a 10ul of positive and 10ul of negative aliquot at 95C for 3 minutes and load on a Std SDS-PAGE gel.


PARP Apoptosis Extract PARP (poly ADP-ribose polymerase) is an important regulator of DNA damage. PARP is inactivated by cleaving the 116 kDa protein into an 89 kDA (1, 2). PARP is a direct target of caspases 3 and 7.
